Hi mates,

I share with you how to make bases easily for SOG with not very expensive materials.

We will need certain materials and tools:


Scissors or cutter
Drill
Sheet water effect. http://www.greenstuffworld.com/es/inicio/375-planchas-aguas-calmadas.html
Foam PVC or similar 1.5 mm or 2 mm



Process:

Cut the sheet of water effect and PVC foam with the same dimensions that have their original equivalents.
Make a hole in the middle of the base.
Paint the PVC base. You can make a cloud effect for example.
When the PVC is dry, draw the arcfire with a permanent pen.

You have finished!

Final comments
You can add if you want all the additional information that comes in the original cards. You can use stickers to put that information, glued on the base of PVC.
You can also make reversible bases.

I really like that water effect Julián.
I think that sheets of that are going to have more than one use!

I could not say for sure, but the Spanish company can send it as a normal letter. Sold in size DIN A 4
